Conglomerate Radio: Information Transmission, Modulation and Noise


Published October 26, 1970


In this broadcast of “Information Transmission, Modulation and Noise”, host Richard Friedman presents an interesting and eclectic blend of music, sound poetry, and sundry in-studio shenanigans. Recorded on October 26, 1970, this was a late night, free form program devoted to giving succor to insomniacs, hope to the soon to be hung-over, and pleasure to the persistent listener. This particular production profiles the progress made by Friedman and his partners in post-modern programing, Charles Amirkhanian and Anthony Gnazzo, as they place their fingers on the pulse of something not yet fully formed, and declare “It’s Alive”. Elements that make up this entertaining romp through a landscape of musical genres, include samples of folk music from around the world, Swedish sound-poet Åke Hodell’s text-sound composition “Where is Eldridge Cleaver?”, unidentified electronic music, jazz, avant-garde improvisational piano playing, and a conversation with a pilot using KPFA as a directional guide as he flies over Placerville. Truly a program not to be missed.
